6:03am
inside the clubhouse. the players, coaches, manager davey johnson, all of them getting showered in sham pain. stephen strasburg apparently even did the limbo but not bryce harper. the all-star is only 19. he had to share some apple cider, nonalcoholic apple cider with adam la roche's 9-year-old son. 22 home runs he still can't drink the bubbly. minutes earlier the team celebrated on the field. fireworks, more shame pain. it was a moment -- champagne. it was a moment they dreamed of for six straight months. it was a moment they almost couldn't believe was happening. >> it's unbelievable. this town, this city, this team, it's speechless. >> in the spring nobody talked about us having a chance. we kept our noses in the game. every single guy stepped up. it's a huge accomplishment. we're happy to be the nl east division champs. >> we've come a long way. it's been a long year. we've done some good things.

of famer frank robinson will throw out the first pitch at one of the upcoming playoff games. he was the manager for the team's first two years here in washington. the team's website says he'll throw out the first pitch for either game three or game four of the division series coming up next week. a sad anniversary. it was ten years ago today the sniper shootings in our area began. it started with a stray bullet going through the window of a crafts store in aspen hill, maryland. an hour later 55-year-old james martin was killed in the parking lot of a shoppers food warehouse in glenmont. at first it seemed just like a random crime but the next day four people were shot and killed in the span of two hours across montgomery county. it took three more weeks before police arrested john allen mohammad and lee boyd malvo. the to werelinked to the shoot -- two were linked to the shootings which killed ten people and hurt three others. rhett leverett was killed monday morning in northwest washington.

6:07am
soon. the tax policy center estimates most households could see an nch tax increase of -- an average tax increase of $3500. that's because a record number of tax increases are due mostly to the expiration of temporary provisions that were put in place since 2001. they're said to take effect in january. all tolled, the center estimates the taxes would rise by more than $500 billion in 2013. the good news? if you think congress will let all the scheduled tax increases take effect but at the moment it's not clear what kind of fiscal clear deal lawmakers want to negotiate. and anything they do resolve won't happen till after the election. it's a boy for yahoo's c.e.o. mar ris ya may -- marissa mayer. she was one of the original employees of google. she planned to go back to work a few weeks after giving birth and her comments set off a lengthy debate about how corporate family policies makes it hard to juggle a successful

"the wall street journal" reports ikea has released a statement expressing regret and says the decision clashes with its value. in saudi arabia, a woman must have a man's permission to leave the house, study or work and they're also not allowed to drive. >> people are pretty upset. >> but can't they brush their teeth? >> it seems like such an overstep. >> really. thank you, jess. our time 16:08. in -- is 6:08. in four minutes, a preview of tomorrow's first presidential debate. >> howard says grab an umbrella before you head out the door. you will need t. up next how long the soggy weather is going to stick around.

6:12am
welcome back. howard here with your weather first. you'll need some rain gear. expecting scattered showers around. maybe a couple of thunderstorms. will be more likely this morning. by the afternoon the axis may shift more east of i-95. it will be a seasonably mild day with highs between 75 and 80. checking out your drive, if you're east on 66, you're about to head there. here's the irk. eastbound 66 -- issue. eastbound 66 trying to get into vienna. two separate incidents. on the left side you see the fire department response to an incident. fronds that the -- beyond that the far right lane is blocked. going to cost you extra time this morning. also east near the 27-mile marker heading into delaplane, there's an issue on the left side. your next timesaver traffic at 6:18. >> thank you. the first of three presidential debates is tomorrow night in denver.
6:13am
the focus tomorrow night is domestic issues, especially the economy. joining us for a preview this morning is the white house correspondent for "u.s.a. today," channel 9 and "u.s.a. today" are both owned by gannett. we're glad to have you here with us. the debates have been hiked as game changers but even last month the obama advisors were saying they expect mitt romney to get a big boost from the media and in the polls after wednesday night. is that what we should expect to see? >> it's amazing how both sides can fall over each other to say nice things about each other right before the debate. i think the one and only time they'll say anything nice about each other. it's an interesting situation, for mitt romney, this debate is very important. he does need a game change. he's behind. there's time but time is running out so he needs to reverse momentum. for president obama, he needs to keep the momentum going. he wants to keep romney on the defense and that's what he's
6:14am
going to look to accomplish with the debate. >> it's going to be very tough. we're talking about the economy and the president has to answer that infamous question are we better off today than four years ago. seems like his advisors have even had problems answering that question. >> yeah. but at the same time he's definitely i think sort of turned the question into well, yes, we aren't better off than with you are four years ago today but remember where you were four years ago today and how we were on the cusp of depression and it could have been a lot worse. and, you know, whether you agree with him or disagree with him, he's been able to turn the question around pretty aptly. >> governor romney has changed his opinion on the dream act and governor chris christie says he has to do something bold and he will do something bold. is this the beginning of seeing
6:15am
bold moves by governor romney? >> he's got to do something. the race is close overall but when you look at the swing states and particularly ohio and florida, he's getting pretty far behind. if he loses both ohio and florida, it's over. but as far as substantively, i have a hard time believing there's going to be a huge big policy announced in a debate. that just doesn't happen. often these small moments -- i knew john f. kennedy. you're likable enough. >> what's interesting, your colleague david jackson, who watches these things found that a new study show -- david jackson does -- that the candidate who blinking the least during the debate is the person who will declared the win senator. >> i'll be counting. that's my job to count the blinks. these things are -- it's amazing. but it also gets back to body language is very important. you go back in history. we all learned how nixon beat kennedy on the radio but on tv he lost. >> does it swing the way voters
6:16am
will vote in november what happens in these debates? >> here's another thing that's really important for romney. likability. he needs to get a human moment in there. there's a poll out where more people want to see obama on "dancing with the stars" than romney. that's sully. it's absolutely ridiculous but it talks about something obama has that romney has had a difficult time overcoming. >> it's something we heard with george w. bush and al gore at one time. thank you very much. he'll be watching the debates tomorrow in richmond with a group of voters. 9news and "u.s.a. today" are teaming up for debate night. beginning tomorrow night at 9:00, u.s.a. today reporters will be fact checking and counting blinks of what the candidates say. see it live on wusa9.com and catch aamer's reporting from virginia. you nova v.a. is a battleground state for this election. now to howard for the forecast. thanks. scattered showers out there so grab the rain gear but it's not

6:21am
6:53. too many americans are struggling to find work
6:22am
6:23am
in today's economy. too many of those who are working are living paycheck to paycheck trying to make falling incomes meet rising prices for food and gas. more americans are living in poverty than when president obama took office and fifteen million more are on food stamps. president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good paying job. my plan will create twelve million new jobs over the next four years helping lift families out of poverty and strengthening the middle-class. i'm mitt romney and i approve this message because we can't afford another four years like the last four years.
